Then the ds and they shot out pearl and diamond dsi and dsxl hg and ss. Now we have 3ds and they are making 3ds compatible versions. I think thry are trying to honor the fans more these days and dont wanna follow nintendos random new system every year pattern. In hindsight they could look at it as a great owe to the fans to be able to explore t entire. Main story universe on one system ( sinnoh, johto, kanto, unova, and hoenn)
Plus im locked in on the amount of purposeless dialogue and purposeless map tiles that only seem like its preparation for a hoenn revisit
No games before BW were released after a successor handheld came out.

But now its gonna be 2 years by the time the next games could be released. Changeover to 3DS is overdue and going to happen. There is no more games coming for the DS after this month, let alone next summer..
gamefreak had the 3DS devkit in their hands before anyone else too, surely theyve been working on something for the past 2 years with that?
